Lacrosse loses at state semi-finals
The Vashon boys lacrosse team completed its season last Wednesday after being defeated 12-4 in the semi-finals of state championship playoffs. They lost to the 2014 Division II champions, Seattle Academy.
The Vashon Vultures advanced to the semi-finals after a hard-fought, come-from-behind victory against Camas High School and entered the semi-final game with high hopes of reaching the state finals.
Unfortunately, Seattle Academy arrived at Vashon Stadium ready to play and took control of the game early on in the first quarter. The Cardinal offense moved the ball well and found open players in front of the goal too often for Vashon. The Vultures rallied in the second half and were able to score four goals while slowing the scoring of Seattle Academy. Vashon played the entire game with intensity and heart, despite being behind on the scoreboard.
“We were all disappointed with the outcome of the game,” coach Dan Macca said. “But I reminded all the players to look at the bigger picture. Last year we were a 2-10 team. This year we won 12 games, defeated three Division I teams and went on a 10-game winning streak. That’s a pretty amazing turn around. I am extremely proud of this team and all we accomplished.”
The Vashon Vultures wish to thank all of the community and parents for their support and encouragement this season.
